Jazzy, I also wanted to applaud you *APPLAUD* for those tips and also posting the instructional drawings of the horses (what is where, etc). It is really a great source of information! Especially for people (like me;) ) that don't have too much knowledge about proper conformation and conformation shots yet Ans yes, people tend to not read instructions, maybe there could be a message popping up before they submit their post asking" Are your pictures critiqueable? If you're not sure please the thread on how to post correct conformation pics. It's really awesome!"

I'd say remove pictures that don't work and refer them to the sticky on how to do it. That's how I've seen other forums do it. And it's not meant to be mean, but it keeps the 'pretty horse' comments down since this area is really for critique.

I agree, you've done a great job here!

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Great thread.

Adding on, when you are squaring your horse, it's nice for us critiquers to see each leg. So spread them out a tiny bit. Jazzyrider's first picture was great.

You might consider not allowing horses under two being posted for critiques. It's almost impossible to give anything real positive except for a pretty color since they all look so awkward from birth until they get a little older.

A person wanting a good critique just isn't going to get a decent one since they are so awkward looking! They are cute, but just not critique material.

Would anyone be able/interested in making a thread of the different faults? I know, or at least hope, I'm not the only one who get confused at some of the terms. Pictures and explanations of what sickled hocked, and cow kneed or whatever would be really helpful I think.

Great thread, BTW, I tried to use it when I got pictures of my pony

I think it may be time to bump up a couple of these stickies as it seems that many people are not reading them.
